This Chuck Lee Tubaphone Banjo Open Back 11" - also known as his Marble Falls, is a stunning display of artisanal craftsmanship from the long-time banjo builder out of Ovilla, Texas - and this is a real masterpiece. The stained black Maple rim accompanied by its 11" Tubaphone tone ring, give it extraordinary volume and sustain while being crisp and bright without ever getting harsh.
Its Ebony fingerboard with offset Mother-of-Pearl dot inlays add to its classic look, while its Cherry neck with the Man in the Moon peghead inlay offer a more modern vibe. A full 25 1/2" G scale and 1 3/8" vintage-scalloped bone nut top off its flawless construction, and a two way adjustable truss rod, easy action height adjustment, and Frailing scoop round out its appointments. The Chuck Lee Tubaphone Banjo Open Back 11" is an amazing instrument and one of the finest-looking we've seen.
